Remember, you may not use WIKIPEDIA. Since, when you do a GOOGLE search, wikipedia tends to come up first, you will need to jump down to the third or fourth entries and start there.
At that point you will need to evaluate the credibility of the source.
1. Check out the ABOUT section of the website.
2. Look for .edu or .org in the web address.
3. Use the RADCAB acronym to help you decide if this is a credible website.

You can then do a search for information on these places, people, and movements.
